Amazon Prime Video has won the rights to broadcast the US Open Tennis Championships in the UK and Ireland for the next five years.

Rumours of the deal first surfaced last November.

As well as live matches, the SVoD will also provide access to on-demand match highlights and other content. 

Prime Video members in the UK and Ireland will be able to watch US Open content on the Prime Video app for TVs, game consoles, set top boxes and connected devices, including Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV, mobile devices and online. There will be no additional charge for the content.

“We are proud to partner with the USTA to add the US Open to the growing portfolio of sports available on Prime Video,” said Alex Green, managing director, channels and sports, Prime Video Europe. “This prestigious event, along with the other exciting tennis coming this year and next, makes Prime Video a destination for tennis fans in the UK and Ireland.”
